Will be interesting to see. The price was broken down as £245 for the watch, £51 for import charges, and £5 for P&P. They won't charge more than the £51, but may issue a refund if it's cheaper. It should arrive in the next couple of weeks so I'll update afterwards.
How good are the Amazon's "Import Fees Deposit"?
Really ugly looking watch
Movement (which is a Swiss ronda) is good, but you're right they probably pay less than 20 quid per watch for the movement. So it's a good movement and far more accurate than an automatic obviously, but like you say quartz are inexpensive to manufacture and not as sexy. However the watch as a whole is superb quality and well worth the money in my humble opinion. You're getting great build quality from a reputable Swiss brand, with a nice selling point around the robustness and a relatively unusual design (although of course there's a Genta influence mixed in). Its also at a price where us normal folk don't need to worry about it. Not that Rolex is particularly relevant as clearly it's a different league price wise, but I'd bet the % profit margin on the Rolex is higher than on this, as the quality of all the metal parts really is stellar in this watch as one would expect from Victorinox who have been know for their metalwork for over a century (particularly the bracelet varieties) and it's being sold at 1/20th of the cost. That's not to say Rolex aren't justified, their brand carry the weight to justify the margin, but the price justification argument should be consistently applied if used at all. My 2 cents (y)
Wow, They are iconic watches but not sure that I would pay that sort of money just to see the time. I think realistically I would pay around 4 grand for a Rolex, hence the reason I do not have one
